Meet the Governors

Welcome to St Mary's Priory Schools Governing Body

Welcome to the Governance page of Plympton St. Mary Infant school and Old Priory Junior Academy Governing Body.  Both schools are part of St. Christopher’s Multi Academy Trust; “A strong family of outstanding schools, serving their community and contributing fully to the provision of education, collaborating with other partners to achieve common goals.”

 

The Multi Academy Trust is accountable in Law for all decisions about its academies however, the Local Governing Bodies have been delegated responsibilities by the Trust which along with working with the senior leadership team ensures that day to day decisions regarding the school's are made locally by those who know the school best. The Local Governing Board also supports staff to ensure that the School continues to move forward in line with its School Improvement Plan.

 

The Local Governing Board is made up of dedicated volunteers all of whom have different skills and experience and have a common commitment to education, the school children, staff, parents/carers and the local community.

 

If you would like to find out more about the Governing body or are interested in becoming a member, please contact the Clerk to the Governing Body old.clerk@stcmat.org
